This episode of iZombie manages to combine the usual murder of the week while moving several of the subplots forward. The rabidly anti-zombie forces in New Seattle are deep-rooted and more pervasive than I thought, and are starting to surprise Liv and friends.
On the final season of iZombie, the walled city of New Seattle is at war with itself. There are zombies, anti-zombie bigots, Filmore-Graves trying to keep order, the police, Liv’s Renegade network, and still some fairly normal people trying to just get by.
There many conflicting factions now on iZombie. Fillmore-Graves is kind of on their own side, Dolly Durkins’ “Dead Enders” are rabidly anti-zombie, Liv’s network is trying to make life better for some on the outside, and the US Government wants an excuse to wipe New Seattle off the map.
When I first heard about the iZombie show, I had some doubts. Something or other about it interested me enough to watch the first episode, and I was hooked. I’ve seen them all since, and I’m sorry this is the final season.
The fourth season of iZombie comes to a close with “And He Shall Be A Good Man.” As usual, with a season finale, there are going to be spoilers.
Things are building to a head as iZombie nears the end of their fourth season. They continue their string of punny/pop culture titles with “You’ve Got To Hide Your Liv Away,” riffing on a Beatles song of similar name.
IZombie is getting close to the end of the season as plots gather steam and the crew faces all sorts of challenges and problems.
Liv and company get kept very busy with murders, smuggling, research and conspiracies, in “Yippie Ki Brain, Motherscratcher,” a nod to a great line from the movie Die-Hard.
Isobel, the young woman Liv and company met through Renegade’s network, has a lot on her plate. Smuggled illegally into New Seattle, dying from a fatal disease, she was hoping, like so many others, that the process of becoming a zombie would halt her disease. Instead, she’s proven to be the only person so far who is apparently naturally immune to zombie-ism.
“Chivalry is Dead” is another amusing adventure of the zombie crew of New Seattle and their friends, with new personality twitches galore.
